McDonald's Filet-o-Fish now fried in separate oil

(January 5, 2002) has learned that the fish in the Filet-o-Fish at McDonald's Canada is now fried in its separate oil. It used to be fried in the same oil in which Chicken McNuggets were fried. Since the McNuggets - which are from chickens that are not slaughtered according to Islamic Law - were fried in the oil, the oil was considered contaminated. But since that is not the case anymore, there seems to be no problem with the fish in the Filet-o-Fish sandwiches. However, the cheese must still be avoided, because it may contain animal ingredients. The Filet-o-Fish may be ordered without the cheese. Please note that we strongly advise that Muslims avoid eating food from non-Muslim restaurants, due to the high risk of contamination by dirty utensils, unwashed hands/gloves, mishandling, and human error.

  1. Assalaamu Alaykum,

    How come there is no information about its cheese?

    And if we should avoid it, it would mean that we should avoid everything which includes numbers like e471, which contains a lot of bread also. So then, we should not only avoid cheese, but also bread I assume?
